New Pigs Posted For Sale!

Check out our Sales page of information on the current crop of piglets available.

We only sell 100% purebred, registered KuneKune piglets.  While the breed in gaining in popularity, the ONLY way to make sure you have a true KuneKune is to buy registered animals.  Registered animals are DNA tested to ensure parentage and permanently identified with a microchip.  If temperament, grazing ability, easy keeping, and size are important to you make sure to do your research.  These pigs make great land managers, companion animals, or meat animals.

Slower growing means easier on the land and the human managers!  These pigs are ALWAYS worth the wait – no matter what their end purpose is.

Nora’s litter is 8 weeks old and ready to rumble!  These piglets are sturdy, curious and feisty pigs!

Ophelia’s litter is about 10 days old and growing well!  They are pig wrestling, trying to stay cool, and starting to explore more  and more!

A limited number of breeding pairs will be available by purchasing piglets from Nora’s litter to combine with a piglet from Ophelia’s litter.

These piglets are 100% pasture raised.  They are farrowed in a secure pen in the field and raised with the sow for the first few weeks and then integrated into the herd.  Our pigs are used in our management intensive rotational grazing program along with cattle and sheep.  They are around dogs and other animals from very early.

Welcome!

Welcome to Balanced Earth Farm’s corner of the interweb!

We are a small (but growing) sustainable farm in the beautiful Columbia Gorge; specifically, in Hood River, Oregon.  Hood River is an amazing little town nestled right on the banks of the mighty Columbia River that divides Oregon from Washington.  We are a mecca for windsurfing, kite boarding, mountain sports, kayaking, running and biking of all kinds.  In addition, our fertile valley produces an array of fruits and plants: apples, pears, blueberries, lavender and wine grapes!

On our farm we currently raise cattle, sheep, pigs, chickens and occasionally turkeys for meat and eggs.  These animals are also integral in our pasture management and improvement, vineyard maintenance, and humor!

Our animals are used in a management intensive grazing program in which they are rotated daily onto new pasture for grazing.  This ensures healthy pasture land, more even distribution of fertilizer, decreased need for chemical parasite control and allows us to graze from approximately April to November.

We are in process of planting approximately 10 acres of wine grapes – look for our wines in the coming years!
